KBTX Moves Closer to Digital

It's the beginning of the end for the KBTX analog transmitter and antennae.

A tower crew has arrived at our transmitter site in Carlos to begin the process of taking down and powering off everything analog.

Sometime in the next three weeks the low power digital transmitter will be replaced with a full power, one million watt transmitter.

The new antennae will replace the old one and be moved 200 feet higher on the top of the tower.

Once installed and fully operable the KBTX and CW signals will have a much farther and stronger reach than before.

Keep it here to learn when the big switch from analog to digital will take place.
